Dino Abduljawad On His Experience At The Youth Action Forum
Another thing that has kept me going back is the very close friends that I’ve made there. This is something which I did not expect when I first went. I’ve realized that, because of the personal nature of some of the discussions, it was very easy to create a large friend group with all the others attending the forum and I have made lifelong friendships with countless other very special people.
The Action Forum has had a large influence on me as a person. I’ve gained a lot of confidence in public speaking and I’ve learned about the importance of sharing your own views and being able to accept others’. Furthermore, the Action Forum has helped me outside of Aspen, as I’ve tried to set up a similar seminar-based discussion at my school. It was so beneficial for me that I felt that it could help others in my community if they were able to have the same experience. So, I would suggest that students go to Aspen and be a part of this eye-opening experience. It has definitely been a privilege to attend.
